Loos like Daucus carita... Know commonly as Queen Anme'/ Lace, or so WTO es wild carrot (not edible, so far as I know),

Thanks Lessa, for IDing the flower. . I'm not much into plants and flowers. I think that was the first wild plant/flower I have ever photographed. I've seen them all along the west coast, but haven't seen them around Clarenville/Southport area. do you know the extent of their range in Newfoundland? Sam

Actually, looking at your second photo - I am wrong. The leaves don't match for Queen Anne's Lace. What you have looks familiar, but I can't put my finger on it. If I figure it out, I'll post.

Thanks again, Lessa. I am going back to the west coast this weekend and I will get some more photos, hopefully the weather will be more cooperative. I will measure the leaves and take pics of underside of leaves. also. I will record the places I see them. Many thanks !!

I think it's cow parsnip.

I think Michelle S is right - cow parsnip (Heracleum maximum) - it is widespread over most of North America.
